A biosensor includes a PPG circuit that emits light directed at living tissue at a plurality of wavelengths. A first and second spectral response of light reflected from the tissue is obtained around a first wavelength and a second wavelength. Using absorption coefficients for substances at the plurality of wavelengths, concentration levels of a plurality of substances may then be determined from the spectral responses. This embodiment of the biosensor may thus be used to determine concentrations of a plurality of substances in arterial blood flow using the spectral response.

A cable management assembly for managing cabling of equipment is provided. The cable management assembly may be utilized to manage the movement of cables attached to the enclosures when the enclosures are pulled into and out of the front of a structure during servicing. The cable management assembly may comprise one or more detachable cable support members that form a helix having a first attachment end and a second attachment end. The first attachment end may be attached to an enclosure and the second attachment end may be attached to a rear back plate assembly. The detachable cable support members include a plurality of flat segments having a generally elongated planar configuration or a curved configuration. A combination of planar and curved segments may be secured together forming a loop. A plurality of loops may be secured together forming the assembly.

An integrated drug delivery and biosensor (IDDB) system is implemented on a patch or arm band. The drug delivery system includes needles adapted to pierce the skin and direct injection of a predetermined dosage of medication through the needles into the epidermis of the skin of a patient. The integrated biosensor monitors absorption of the medication into the epidermis of the skin of the patient and may also monitor concentration of the medication or other relevant substances in arterial blood flow of the patient. The integrated biosensor may also monitor a patients vitals in response to the medication. The integrated biosensor may then alter dosage or frequency of administration of dosages or even halt a dosage of medication in response to the patients vitals or absorption of the medication.

A health care band operably attaches a biosensor to a patient. The biosensor includes one or more sensors for collecting vitals of a patient and a wireless transmitter that is configured to communicate with an EMR network that stores and maintains an EMR of the patient. The biosensor stores a unique identification associated with the patients EMR such that vitals measured by the biosensor may be transmitted with the patients unique identification for storage in the patients EMR. The sensors in the biosensor may include a thermometer, motion detector/accelerometer, pulse detector and oximeter, etc. In an embodiment, one of the sensors in the biosensor includes a photoplethysmography (PPG) based sensor that may be configured to continuously or periodically measure a patients vitals, such as heart rate, pulse, blood oxygen levels, blood glucose or insulin levels, or other blood analytics in vitro.

A glucose biosensor includes a plurality of optical fibers configured for placement within the ear canal. A first optical fiber emits light into the ear canal. A plurality of other optical fibers capture and transmit the reflected light back to the glucose biosensor. A plurality of photodetectors are configured in the glucose biosensor to detect the reflected light from the plurality of optical fibers. The glucose biosensor processes the detected light from each photodetector to determine a glucose level measurement. In an embodiment, the glucose biosensor also includes a wireless interface to transmit the glucose level measurements to a glucose meter and/or a gateway.

In one aspect, an arc fault relief panel is provided for mounting to a cabinet for enclosing medium- or high-voltage electrical equipment. The panel includes bend relief cuts or slots to allow the panel to fail in a predictable manner during an explosive arc fault. That is, the cuts or slots provide weakened locations or segments along the panel that permit a main portion of the panel to bend outwardly during an explosive arc fault. The main portion of the panel may be secured to other components of the cabinet with tear-away fasteners. During an explosive arc fault, the panel tears away from the fasteners, allowing the panel to bend outwardly along its weakened segments to provide an opening for venting pressurized air. A lanyard cable may be used to restrict outward movement of the main portion of the panel to help protect adjacent equipment or nearby personnel.

The present invention relates to printed circuit boards (PCBs), and more particularly, to methods of forming high aspect ratio through holes and high precision stub removal in a printed circuit board (PCB). The high precision stub removal processes may be utilized in removing long stubs and short stubs. In the methods, multiple holes of varying diameter and depth are drilled from an upper and/or lower surface of the printed circuit board utilizing drills of different diameters.

A retaining clip to be used with a storage device in a host computer system, wherein the retaining clip is configured to secure an interposer serving as electrical and logic state interface between the device and the structure of the host system. The retaining clip engages with the device through a peg inserted into a mounting hole for the device and secures the interposer by holding it against the devices data or power connector by a tab extending over the interposer and exerting pressure against it towards the device. Additional fins extending from the body of the clip in substantially opposite direction from the tab secure the tab against the enclosure of the host computer system.

Methods for forming a stacking interposer are provided that create a more compact and/or reliable interposer cavity. According to one method, a segmentation process that partially cuts a multi-cell, multi-layer PCB panel to a controlled depth along the internal walls/edges of a cavity region with each of the interposer cell sites defined within the PCB panel is used. The material within the cavity region is then removed (by routing) to a controlled depth to form the internal cavity for each interposer cell site. Pillars may then be removed from the PCB panel. As a result of the initial partial cuts of the internal walls of the cavity region, the corners of the cavities may have a square configuration for fitting over the top of a BGA/memory device (which has very square corners).

The present disclosure is directed to visual field replacement unit (FRU) identification and retaining FRU status information of one or more field replaceable units in a host system device when one or more of the field replaceable units is removed from the host system device disconnecting host power to the removed field replaceable unit(s). The one or more field replaceable units may be located on a carrier printed circuit board assembly and the host system device may contain multiple field replaceable units and/or multiple carrier printed circuit board subassemblies. Once the host power is disconnected from the carrier, an alternate power source continues to provide power to keep the FRU indicator illuminated for repairs or replacement. The FRU indicator is illuminated long enough for a service technician to place the carrier on a bench or table top and recognize the failed FRU from the remaining FRUs.
